Are pus spots a side effect of rhinoplasty?

I have a small yellow spot that has developed on outside of my nose. I keep treating it with antiseptic cream Savlon, and it does not seem to improve. This is day 2 and week 1 after having a nose Job.

The nasal skin will undergo many changes immediately after undergoing a rhinoplasty, and I would avoid putting any antiseptic cream on your nose so soon after your surgery.  It is unlikely that it is an infection, and they generally do not occur until 5-7 days after surgery.  I strongly recommend that you follow up with your surgeon for him/her to evaluate what the spot is.
